Museums for All, an initiative of the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), allows individuals and families who receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits to visit participating museums for free or reduced-price admission. SNAP provides much-needed nutrition assistance to low-income Marylanders, and with Museums for All, SNAP can also help Maryland families participate in more of the arts and cultural experiences in our community.
The cost of museum admission can be a barrier for many low-income families, but Museums for All helps SNAP participants enjoy visiting museums in their communities.
Presenting a SNAP Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) Card at a participating museum means that individuals and families can get free or reduced-priced admission.
All types of museums participate — art, history, natural history, children’s museums, science centers, planetariums, nature centers, historic houses/sites, zoos, aquariums, arboretums, and more.
There are nearly 30 participating museums in Maryland, from Baltimore to Annapolis, from Saint Mary’s to Hagerstown, and other cities.
